Event description
Learn the art of hand-lettering to add a personal touch to cards, gifts, and more!

About this event

This beginner workshop will help you learn the basics of hand lettering using brush pens (NO experience necessary). Hand lettering is different from calligraphy & different from hand writing - it's better! You can experiment, make your own 'rules' & engage in a very mindful, meditative, free creative activity. You will learn tips, tricks & techniques to create gorgeous written works while having lots of fun. All supplies are provided. References, inspirational images & quotes or phrases are encouraged (it's easier to think about what to letter in advance, so save some ideas in your phone!).

This workshop includes materials + an entry into the market. As per the Alberta Government, masking is mandatory for this workshop. There is limited capacity so we can ensure social distancing.

Alison is so excited to share the art of hand lettering with some new friends! Follow along on her Instagram at @amartincreative or visit amartincreative.ca for more.

Tickets include:

  • A dual tip brush pen, pencil, and eraser
  • A workbook & tracing paper
  • Gift tags & paper for you to make some hand lettered items
  • A gift from Alison
  • Entry into the Etsy Calgary market

About Our Instructor:

Alison is an artist, illustrator, letterer & creative adventurer based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. She has a BFA from the University of Calgary as well as a BEd from the same awesome place. She loves collaborating with others & gets a kick out of making people smile through her work. When she isn't teaching art to young creatives or running local workshops, she is busy refining her skills in her studio. Alison is available for custom & freelance work – in other words, she cannot resist the power of a good idea or a great cup of coffee!

Organizer of An Intro to Handlettering with Alison Martin

We are the represenatives of online handmade & vintage marketplace, Etsy, here in Calgary! Our goal is to encourage the local handmade community through workshops, markets, cool projects, and great partnerships! 

 

You probably know us best from our markets (Spring, Fall, and Christmas!), which feature tonnes of local handmade and vintage sellers. We started small in 2014, but have grown exponentially with the generous support of the Calgary community. 

 

Etsy Calgary is managed by co-organizers Lindy Turner & Jillian Logee, who each run their own handmade businesses right here in Calgary. Lindy makes delightful and fun stationery, while Jillian makes art and home goods using her photographs.
